Exclusive: Virtue Czar Wannabe Caught in a Lie
When Scaife Monkeyboy and conspiracy theorist Joseph Farah announced on WorldNetDaily that he would be answering questions about his new book Taking America Back on the Washington Post’s Live Online forum on March 12, I cursed my luck because I had scheduled to do some scouting for my documentary film that day. However, the night before Farah did the Q & A, I checked the Live Online site and discovered that one could submit questions beforehand, so I submitted the following question for Farah: “In your book, you call on Americans to embrace God and biblical morality. How can you do this when you also have borne false witness against President Clinton with absurd charges of murdering dozens of people?”

I knew that if the Post people submitted my question to Farah, the big fat phony would lie through his teeth—which he did. However, when I submitted the question, in order to clarify to the Post that I wasn’t a crank making a false accusation, I included a note with documentation of Farah’s paranoid accusations from a WorldNetDaily column (Click here for another good article on Farah and the "Clinton Body Count" urban legend). Luckily, the people at the Post included my documentation in the transcript. Here is the transcript of my question and Farah's answer:

"Los Angeles, Calif.: In your book, you call on Americans to embrace God and biblical morality. How can you do this when you also have borne false witness against President Clinton with absurd charges of murdering dozens of people?"
"Note: Farah's embrace of the "Clinton Body Count" urban legend can be found here."

"Joseph Farah: Can you cite one place where I have ever accused President Clinton of murdering anyone?"

I don’t know why Farah answered my question with another question. Even if I had been present during the Q & A, the format wouldn’t have allowed me to answer his question. Fortunately, the answer to Farah’s question is included in my note. No wonder Farah hasn’t linked to the Live Online transcript. Truth 1, Farah 0.

I know some people are thinking: “What Farah did in the 1990's is ancient history.” I can’t be any more emphatic that this view is wrong. It is wrong for many reasons. Here are a couple big reasons. First, many of these lowlifes from the Clinton years are attempting to reinvent themselves as respectable human beings. Roger Ailes is currently presenting himself as an executive for what he alleges is an impartial news network. Limbaugh is trying to appear more mainstream (and being defended by Howard Kurtz). Farah is presenting himself as an arbiter of moral propriety--the subtitle of Farah’s book is “A Radical Plan to Revive Freedom Morality and Justice” (ironically, Farah has something in common with reigning Virtue Czar William Bennett; both Bennett and Farah are cozy with Sun Myung Moon; click here and here). These people deserve to be confronted.

Also, bringing up the dirty tricks operations against the Clintons serves an important reminder of the nature of the hard right and it provides a stark contrast to the present political atmosphere. In the current political climate, if George W. Bush were to take a dump on the White House lawn, anyone who doesn’t proclaim it the Immaculate Conception is not only accused of hating Bush but also of being anti-American—often by the same people who engaged in the wholesale slander campaign against the Clintons. A case in point, Natalie Maines of the Dixie Chicks gave her honest opinion about Not-My-President Bush and the same people who were engaged in wholesale character assassination during the last administration are now complaining about Maines’ lack of respect for the office of the presidency. This hypocrisy deserves our attention.
